“WorkPlace OnLine was an essential operational tool for our company throughout the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. The system allowed us to effortlessly and seamlessly schedule our employees across multiple venues, while simultaneously allowing us to increase the number of staff we were scheduling by 500 percent over 3 months with a minimum of additional administrative costs”, commented Joe Domijan, Logistics Coordinator at Viridian Power.
Barney Quinn CEO commented, “WorkPlace Systems is excited to be opening its new office in downtown Chicago; we have made a significant investment and recruited additional staff to service our growing customer base in this location.
